Yes, we are here!

In times like these our hobbies become lifesavers. At GAS ENGINE MAGAZINE and FARM COLLECTOR, we have been tracking down the most interesting and rare vintage farm machines and collections for more than 80 years combined! That includes researching and sourcing the best books on collectibles available anywhere. Our online store is open and we are here to answer any questions you might have. Our customer service staff is available Monday through Friday from 8a.m.-5p.m. CDT. We can be reached at 1-800-888-9098 or by email. Stay safe!


| April/May 1995

I'm pleased to say that as I write this letter, our 1995 Show Directory is now in , print and available! We want you to know, again, that there's no need to destroy your magazine to use the order blank on the inside cover. We put our ad there since it's such an easy to find spot, but all you need to do is send us your name, address and check, and tell us how many you want!

We heard from a subscriber asking for more articles on the history of engine companies, restoring information and tips on 'how to.' It you have the expertise to write on some of these subjects, let's hear from you!

On the cover of our last issue (March), we showed Greg Rush's address before his recent move. He now lives at 591 Getz Road, PenArgyl, Pennsylvania 18072, it you wanted to write him about his story.

In recent issues, we have been getting some personally guided comments in the text of some of our advertisers' ads. Those of you who engage in this kind of commentary, or who are the object of it, know of what we speak. We rarely deny anyone access to our advertising section, and do so only when we have strong suspicions of fraudulent intentions. Generally speaking, you pay for the space, and you are free to write in it what you wish to say. However, we would greatly appreciate it it those of you who have unpleasant remarks to make about one another, or whole organizations, would talk to each other rather than use GEM's advertising pages as a soap box to take rude swipes at one another. Our readers are looking for parts and engines in the ad section, not recriminations.

And congratulations to our columnist Charles Wendel! This month marks the end of his first ten years doing the Reflections column, and fittingly, it is the largest one ever! We've never had a 96-page issue this early in the year, but we had to make this one mighty large to accommodate Mr. Wendel's 28 page column!

Plans are proceeding on our European tour for next September, and reservations are coming in nicely! Don't put off making yours much longer.
